Mr. Craig Hemphill

Craig Hemphill is an American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) Certified Teacher, an Emerald Life Master, and a consistent finisher in the ACBL list of top annual players. He adds about 500 master points annually to his current total of about 9000. He is active in bridge organizations, having edited the Florida Bridge News for seven years, and served as both president and board member of Unit 128 of the ACBL. In 2011, he began to share his knowledge of the game by teaching at his club, leading individual groups, and instructing here at Jekyll Island. For the past three years, he has been a commentator for the Saturday session of The Common Game, available to clubs internationally for provision of hand records with commentary and broad comparison of results.

Alex Brough

Teaching bridge is Alex Brough's “second career” since he retired from a 30-year career as an insurance broker in 2001 and relocated to coastal Georgia with his wife, Lois. Sensing a growing interest in bridge locally, Alex became a certified ACBL director and founded two duplicate bridge clubs. He enjoys the flair of tournament play and earned the distinction of Bronze Life Master. He is an ACBL certified teacher and director, member of the American Bridge Teachers Association and recipient of his Unit’s 2010 Goodwill Award. Alex is president of Coastal Georgia Bridge Unit 202, and has served for approximately 300 days as bridge director for cruise lines. He is also a retired commander of the U.S. Navy reserves, with 25 years active duty and reserve service as a Russian linguist and intelligence officer. He is an active golfer, bicyclist and tennis player, and enjoys travelling internationally.
